Rent the Runway
Chances are, you've begrudgingly had to buy yet another dress for yet another wedding and/or coveted a designer piece you couldn't afford. Well, the new site launching next week, Rent the Runway, reconciles such fashion conundrums perfectly.
Think Netflix for clothes, in a way. What's promised: select a designer-label item from the invitation-only (you've just got to request an invite) site's extensive selection for around $50 and the frock - in two sizes no less - is yours for 4-8 days, after which you've got to drop it in an envelope and send it back. They dryclean.
Because we all know the biggest fashion stars wear mostly borrowed items for events, anyway, right?
